Desirable skills for the successful candidate include:

  • Prior experience working in a public sector environment – ideally local government or health authority
  • 10 years experience working in an Architecture / Design post with certifications relevant to the role advertised (e.g. CISSP).
  • Detailed technical understanding of Microsoft Azure – especially the considerations that need to be made when moving from a wholly owned on premise environment to a shared cloud environment

  • You will be expected to be able to make decisions about Azure and O365 information governance on the fly and be able to defend and explain those decisions to various technical and non-technical stakeholders. You will face-off to MS experts in meetings and your decisions will have a material impact on how the Council use the cloud based environments they migrate into. The Council has over 120 separate applications most of which will move into Azure or O365 so this is a significant information governance risk and thus needs to be appropriately managed – the mitigation of this risk will be your role.
